I see it every year, and still I am amazed at the change 6 weeks can make.
Update: 9:00 a.m.
This border was a bit battered after the one hour of rain we got last night. So this morning I cut most of the mallow down. This border is just CRAMMED with plants growing on top of each other. It's survival of the fittest in this border. I do very little to interfere (i.e. I do almost NO work - just let it fend for itself)
Even after cutting down the mallow you can see that it is still full.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
